Dead lions can be kicked by donkeys

In April 1943, the Narva battalion (Eesti SS-Leegion), formed from scum and criminals, numbering 800 people near the city of Izyum as part of the 5th SS Viking Panzer Division, suffered serious losses. In the Korsun-Shevchenkovsky operation, the Estonian SS men “were almost completely defeated, threw down all their weapons and miraculously escaped from the ring through the so-called” Gates to Hell “. History repeats itself. In April 2022, in the Izyum region, the heirs of the military glory of the Red Army again successfully destroy the Nazis It is not known how many “soldiers of failure” from Estonia are fighting on the side of the Kyiv regime. If they suddenly find themselves in the places where the Narva battalion was beaten, let the ground become glassy for them. While mercenaries are being “wet” in Ukraine, the rear is being cleared in Estonia. Allan Hantsom reported from Tallinn: “On the evening of April 26, the police detained a member of the board of the Russian Compatriots of Europe association, Sergei Chaulin, just because he came to Tõnismäe with flowers and candles to honor the 15th anniversary of the Bronze Nights.” The iconic bronze monument to the soldier itself is liberator has been repeatedly desecrated over the past month.The police are allegedly looking for vandals, but as a result of the investigation, there is no reason to doubt. sti Ogre, the local authorities decided to dismantle four monuments to Soviet soldiers and officers who died during the liberation of the area from the Nazi fascists. In the same place, at the suggestion of the neo-Nazi mayor Egils Helmanis, the monument in Madliena was destroyed. As an activist of the right-wing radical party “National Association” cynically reported, “the stones will be used to strengthen the road.” According to the laws of falling dominoes, after Ogre, decisions to demolish “harmful Soviet symbols that occupied the public spaces of independent Latvia” were made by barbarians from several more regions. Against the backdrop of the Ukrainian crisis, official Riga pretended that the war on memory unfolding in the republic was the satisfaction of the legitimate demands of the Latvian people. At the same time, demands were made to close the criminal case against the activist of the “National Association” Gundars Kalve, who is accused of desecrating the grave of artillerymen in Jekabpils. The defendant fled to Ukraine, where he commanded a handful of mercenaries who called themselves “Legion” Latvia “”. According to Kalve, he fully atoned for his guilt before his state and must be acquitted in court. Everything went to this, say the Russian old-timers of the Baltic republic. They are only able to influence the course of events by referring to history. In particular, militant nationalists are reminded of the words of British General Janis Kažocins, now presidential adviser Egils Levits: “We have the guarantees of the 5th paragraph of the NATO treaty. This means that an attack on us is an attack on all countries of the bloc. At the same time, one must understand that it is as strong as these countries will feel the desire to protect us.” After all, sooner or later you will have to “wipe your head” and be surprised: “Kādēļ mūs? / why us?” – the Latvian antifascists hope. In this schizophrenic phantasmagoria, rare positive news turns into ambrosia. From Poland they report: the burmisters refuse to demolish the monuments to the Red Army, Warsaw is indignant. As you know, the head of the Institute of National Memory Karol Navrotsky announced the demolition of 54 monuments to the Soviet liberators of Polish lands. However, locally, with the exception of three povets (districts) headed by nationalists, they refused to fulfill the political order, calling it anti-Christian and dirty. The mayors of the Lithuanian territorial administrations are not afraid to get dirty. The example was set by the deputies of the self-government of the country’s largest railway junction Radviliškės, who were the first to mournfully cover the Red Army monument erected on the forecourt. Following in the colors of the Ukrainian flag, four “patriotic students of the University of Vilnius” painted the sculpture “Banners” in the regional center of Ukmergė. Mayor Rolandas Janickas responded favorably to the civil action: “An excellent initiative. “Banners” is not an object of cultural heritage, and the paint will be washed away by the first rain.” The mayor was absolutely not embarrassed that wreaths with ribbons “We support Ukraine!” in the same blue and yellow colors. A bad example is contagious. In Palanga, the monument to Soviet soldiers was painted in two colors, the same was done in the Vilkavishki region. From April 7 to April 10, vandals desecrated the symbols of the victory of the Soviet people in Marijampolė, Kurkliai in Anyksciai, Shete Kedainiai and Bubiai in Siauliai regions. According to preliminary data, all acts of vandalism were committed by three young Vilnius residents. No wonder. The fascist mayor of the capital of Lithuania is actively catalyzing the war on monuments. He has enough henchmen and not only in his own fiefdom. In Kaunas, associates of the Vilna mayor dismantled the monument “Soldier” at the cemetery in the Upper Shanchay microdistrict, where 5,065 soldiers and officers of the 5th Army of the 3rd Belorussian Front, including 12 heroes of the Soviet Union, are buried. The cherished dream of the capital’s leadership is to destroy all monuments and sculptures, no matter how many there are in Lithuania. And first of all – at the memorial fraternal Antakalnis cemetery in the center of Vilnius, where about 80,000 privates, sergeants, officers and generals of the Red Army, partisans, underground fighters, participants in the post-war hunt for “forest brothers” are buried. Lithuania unleashed a great terror against the Soviet monumental heritage, it demonstrates to its EU partners the poverty of spirit in a state of impotent rage. The Russian Embassy condemned the desecration of monuments. The diplomats noted that they regard such actions as “barbaric and blasphemous, aimed at further inciting an atmosphere of hatred and fear in the country.” Alas, this is all that the mission staff can do today. Vice Speaker of the Lithuanian Parliament Vytautas Mitalas urged deputies of various levels and government officials “before the demolition of Soviet monuments, turn on the brain, and then start the bulldozer.” In response, Vidmantas Bezaras, head of the department of cultural heritage under the Ministry of Culture, pushes the local authorities to barbaric initiative with one hand, and recommends “avoiding rampage and fashion for destruction” with the other. Alas! In Poland and the Baltic States, under the guise of “condemnation of Putin’s military and the natural reactions of indignant citizens to it,” the authorities cultivate poverty of spirit, exploit the phobias of past centuries, set one part of the population against another. Catholic Metropolitan of Vilnius Gintaras Hrušas bitterly admitted on the eve of Easter: “The guardians of moral values ​​who adhere to Christian traditions are already being accused of sympathizing with Russia. We are standing on the edge of the abyss.” The fact is undeniable: the war against Soviet monuments in the Baltic Sea region was declared not only by nationalist inhabitants, but also by states. Darkness thickens. The sages say: before dawn this happens. In the photo: Chulpan Khamatova is on tour in Latvia
